The Non–Skinny Jean Trend the Chicest People Will Wear in the 2020s

While skinny jeans will never actually be out of style, there are a range of fresh, non-skinny silhouettes that continue to rise in popularity. Yep, we’re talking about styles like flared denim but also a recent favorite amongst the fashion and celeb world: full-length denim. This cut is in a straight fit, typically comes in a lighter wash, and bunches just slightly on top of the shoes. You may remember Hailey Bieber’s recent ensemble last month featuring the Khaite full-length jeans.

Sure, this silhouette is a far cry from the cropped skinny and straight jeans that we’ve been wearing over the last few seasons, but this is one denim style that will be that forward spin to any outfit in the 2020s. We bet the chicest people out there will give these jeans a whirl with pointed ankle boots now or low-heel strappy sandals when the temperatures start to warm up. To highlight this must-try denim trend further, we rounded up how fashion people are wearing full-length jeans now and how they turned up on the S/S 20 runways. Keep scrolling for more and to shop a few pairs as well.
